Hi there. I've run into a bit of a problem with my work situation recently and I thought you guys might have some good idea's for me. I've currently been employed at mcdonalds for almost 5 years now, and was recently promoted to management but I really can't do the whole fast food for much longer, it doesn't pay enough and there's no benefits. I'm majoring in Psychology, but I need at least a bachelors to even start a job in this field. due to this i've been trying to find a job that requires some kind of certificate to get, that pays atleast 11 an hour and has benefits. i've considered CNA (Certified nurse assist, however I don't think I can deal with cleaning and caring for old people for four years), Police officer (which I have no support for because I'm 4'10 and female) or secretary(however there is too many classes involed) The CNA ceritificate is only 6 weeks, so i'm looking for some kind of job that doesn't take a lot of time to get and will pay better then $8/hr. If anyone has any of jobs they know that is easy to get with a fast certificate I would appretciate any suggestions! I'm willing to try anything that doesn't require cleaning old people's poop.

Once upon I time, I cleaned people's poop for a living (as well as washing them, dressing them, feeding them and so forth).
After a few weeks, I discovered the person inside the body and the personal care I had to give them sort of 'separated out' in my mind and wasn't as bad as you might think. Initially, I saw this body that needed things doing to it, and after a while, it changed. I was only 18 at the time and had no world experience to speak of at that point!
So, don't dismiss it out of hand! And think of the insights you would get for your psychology course being with people in so intimate a role!

Thanks, that really helps! My friends have told me similar things, about it not being as bad as it sounds, so hearing it again makes me believe it more. I originally picked CNA for the psychological benefit of it, as it stands it will probably be my choice if nothing else appeals to me. so thank you for the insight!

Keast - be sure to do some research prior to taking the CNA class. Around here that certificate means virtually nothing. You are extraordinarily luck if you can manage to get $8 an hour even with the certification.
